Match.com recently announced a partnership with Three Day Rule, a personalised matchmaking service that will find you a date that looks like your ex. You simply send them some pictures, and they find a match. The service costs $5,000 (£2,950) for a six-month membership. And it's creepy as hell.
"I've noticed over my years in matchmaking that people have types," Talia Goldstein, the founder of Three Day Rule, told Mashable. "People have a type and it's not necessarily about height or race or hair colour, but a lot of it is about face shape."
And what better way to find that special shape than 21st-century facial recognition software? You get more than just creepiness with your new premium Match.com membership, though. Three Day Rule also supplies a professional matchmaker who will meet with you, discuss your "type," and even prescreen dates so you don't waste your time with types you won't like. The company calls this "a unique, curated online dating experience for relationship-oriented singles."
The real question is: who will be more creeped out? Your ex? Or your potential future lover who's been robotically selected because they look like your ex and hand-curated so that you don't get bored over coffee? [Mashable]
